The Norse explorer is widely recognized to be the first European to reach the shores of North America, in what is known as Newfoundland today. Although it is not clear whether he was part of the initial voyage to North America, he was certainly a member of the Viking expedition that reached L'Anse aux Meadows. According to Viking myths and sagas, Leif Ericson established a colony at Vinland.
